Pinterest Inspired Gift Card Folder with Doodlebug Fairy Tales

Hi Doodlebug Friends!  It's Traci and I'm back to share my project for our Pinterest Inspired Challenge.  I came across this fun little folding mini album on Pinterest and thought it would make a cute little birthday surprise.

For my version, gift cards replace the photos for a fun Birthday Gift Card Folder.

The gingham treat bags are perfect for tucking in gift cards or cash, and the cute clips are not only adorable, but help hold the flaps down and the cash in!

All you need to make this cute project is one sheet of 12x12 card stock, some pattern paper, and some embellishments. 
  1. Start by scoring the 12x12 card stock at 3.5", 4", 8", and 8.5".
  2. Rotate the paper 90 degrees to the left.
  3. Score again at 3" and 7.5".
  4. Trim out the areas shown in black on the Pinterest diagram above.

I can't wait to give this sweet little gift to someone.  The birthday girl could even add photos in the folder for a cute little keepsake later :)

Here is a list of products I used for my project:
1 sheet of white 12x12 card stock
Fairy Tales pattern paper 
Fairy Tales Odds & Ends
Fairy Tales This & That Sticker Sheet
Fairy Tales Cute Clips
Treat Bags
Unicorn Doodle Pop
Fairy Tales Mini Icon Sticker

Thanks so much for checking out my Pinterest inspired project!  Happy crafting!

Graduation Album Kit with Doodlebug Hats Off

Congrats to all of the graduates out there!  It's Traci, and I remember celebrating my boys' graduations from high school a few years back.  It's such an exciting time and those memories need to be captured!  What better way than with a fun mini album and some awesome products from Doodlebug's Hats Off collection!
One of my favorite things about this new collection is the silver. I love that it's metallic so that it gives the paper and embellishments some shine ... perfect for a celebration!
For the inside cover, I added a Diploma from the Mini Diplomas and Caps along with some of the great Odds & Ends die cut pieces.  What a fun little spot for adding a name and date!

Since my album is 6x6, I was able to use the sheets from the 6x6 paper pad for my backgrounds. 
The clear die cut film strip, and the Skinny silver alpha stickers worked perfectly for adding the graduation year to one of the pages.  

Have more photos than a 6x6 mini will hold?  I used the Hats Off collection in another album for my Artsy Albums shop.  It's the first customizable album I've done that can be ordered as a kit, or premade.
This scrapbook measures 6x8, includes a binder style album, and has lots of space for pictures and memorabilia. This one can be ordered customized with your school accent color and the graduation year (for those of you, like me, who might be a bit behind on scrapbooking those photos from 2009+).
